We've become a society that believes people are absolutely entitled to live a life where nothing goes wrong. If something bad should happen, it's obviously because of negligence or malice on someone's part-- usually someone who has a lot of money.

Therefore, people who have bad things happen to them are entitled to be compensated for having their expectation of a perfect life disrupted-- somebody is to blame for every major tragedy or minor inconvenience.


I wish I could add something to this, but it's pretty much perfect as is. :)

So does that mean I can sue over the fact that you're not gay, Gonch? ;)

The way I see it, it's lose/lose. If the rate of incident does go down then people really are that stupid. If it stays the same then it really is a waste of time and effort. Not sure there's a bright side here. ;)

I agree with you in spirit but I still think the 5-gallon bucket example is a really poor one in this case. We'd be better off with something like the taking Preparation H orally example but of course this is CoasterBuzz, and the internet, where no doubt we'll find *someone* to claim even the most reasonable warning signs imaginable are pointless and even the most sensible law suits are superfluous, etc. :)

I once accidentally brushed my teeth with cortisone cream. I was sharing a hotel room with a friend and didn't want to wake him with the light to the dressing area (only the toilet and shower were separated by a door). I grabbed what felt like a tube of toothpaste, squeezed it on my toothbrush, and began brushing. It didn't take long to figure out it wasn't toothpaste.

Can I sue? And if so, do I have to mention the up-side? (my teeth didn't itch all day, lol)

mOOSH (consulting a lawyer about that Gonch thing!)

Man, WalMart owes me ALOT of $$! :)
